My 7 yr old son is obsessed with "touching" himself and I have no idea what to do to get him to stop. My husband says it isn't a big deal, all males do it. My sons teacher is making a VERY big deal out of it and his pediatrician says tell him to go to his room this is to be done in private, but I can't exactly do this while he is in school. We have sat him down and explained that it was inapproriate behavior while at school. Not to mention that my son has anxiety issues which is what they believe this is stemmed from. I just have no idea what to do - it's kind of embarrasing and I don't want kids to pick up on it and make fun of him, since kids can be so cruel. Any suggestions?
